    The last name is spelled incorrectly. It should have been Wollberg. They had to be in the Jewish section of the cemetery. Also buried near by are Amanda Gillespie Peck, James Henry Peck and Mary Elizabeth Peck. There was also a baby Peck burial but no marker.

    • Some family members say she was born in Jackson, Ohio where she was living in 1860 with Daniel Webster Peck and other Gillespies in town.

      The family tree researchers have her brothers and sisters born in Gallia, Ohio. They show her as the daughter of Alexander Gillespie and Martha.

      In the census record in Terre Haute her mother Martha was living with her. A family member says the Terre Haute obituary for Martha said she was the widow of William. The family members who show her married to William also have a last name for Martha of Dryer.

      The more I look at the family history of Alexander Gillespie the less I feel he was the correct spouse. I am leaving him as William. However, I feel it is likely she may have been born in another city in Ohio other than Jackson. I have left her birth place as Gallia. I am not at all sure this is correct. I would appreciate any comments on this.

    Notes 
    • As far as I can tell from talking with various older relatives, Daniel never did divorce Amanda, he ran away to Arkansas and was never heard of for years and years. When his daughters were adults and Amanda was dead he did return to Indiana for a brief visit. Dave Howard
